A plea: where are the links?

For perhaps 80% of the web pages I view, I find it helpful if
not necessary to use a trick to reveal the links.

I use Opera and a button to shift it my own style sheet
which does nothing but blatantly color the links.

Sweeping the page with the mouse is a clumsy alternative.

PLEA: do not *conceal* your links. Make them somehow
obvious. Is this too much to ask?

My browser is set to automatically display links with the standard blue
underlining. It overrides the website designers styling.

Probably, if the page maker is oblivious to the fact that the links are
hard to distinguish in the first place.

I'm using eight links listed horizontally as a menu on my site. I'm using font-variant:small-caps and they are padded so that they mimic buttons.
